Last month we took our first trip of the year to the National Zoo in Washington DC. It was a great day – Mother’s Day actually… and I’ve got quite a few fun pictures. Today I’ll just share a few I took of one of the newest attractions, the “Conservation Carousel.”
Funny thing is, I didn’t actually take a picture of the whole carousel. Strange. I think I had my macro lens on the camera and would have probably had to stand too far away. So today you’ll get just a few details. One thing I love is the non-traditional carousel animals. One of my daughters was so excited to find the Panda, of course. I think I rode the bee.
At the base of each animal is a plaque noting the name of the species and a donor who supported the building of the carousel.
Every part of the structure is beautifully done. Perhaps another reason I was drawn to the details.
So… next time you head to the zoo remember to take along a few extra dollars for a ride on the Conservation Carousel. And I guess next time I go to the zoo I will need to take my wide-angle lens and get a shot of the whole carousel!
